Abstract

Subtle changes in somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) are useful to monitor the disturbance of somatosensory pathways. We attempted to clarify the lesion responsible for the disturbance of sensory tracts and to evaluate whether the level of the lesion could be determined. We investigated cerebrovascular disorders with hemiplegia and cervical myelopathy which had abnormal waves and delayed latency in SEPs.
